SERVING GOD OUT OF FEAR? ~ by Luis Javier Rico

I am not calling Jesus a liar but I am telling you that the interpretation of the Bible of hell believers is completely wrong. Jesus didn't spoke about hell at all. The word hell was inserted in the King James version Bible to replace the word gehena, hades and sheol. None of these words mean the pagan myth doctrine of hell.

Hell believers think that we need to believe in hell in order that through fear we surrounder our lifes to serve God. However, I know a lot of people who as me don't believe in the existence of hell and live everyday life away from worldly sinful satisfaction. They serve in the churches, help those in need, share the gospel, and try everyday to live like Jesus lived not because of fear, but because of the unconditional love of God. There is no way anybody learn to love unconditionally while thinking that God's love is conditional. Fear and terror was a motivation under the Moses Law and the old covenant. In Jesus, that factor is of nonexistence. UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS OUR MOTIVATION BECAUSE GOD LOVES UNCONDITIONALLY.

It is evident and historically proven that a lot of the most horrifying crimes in the history of human kind have been committed by criminals who believe in the existance of hell and who believes in conditional salvation. Therefore, what we believe has nothing to do with our acts.

For us who don't believe in hell or conditional salvation, our focus is God. The one that is in the throne is God. NOT US, NOT ME, NOT YOU, BUT GOD. How would you serve God unselfishly if your salvation is on your mind??

1 Timothy 4:10. God saved ALL MEN. Not just believers!!

For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God,who is the Savior of ALL MEN, especially of believers. (I Timothy 4:10)

Who's God the savior of?? Only Believers?? !!! NOT !!! SAVIOR OF ALL MEN !!
The scriptures following 1 Timothy 4:10 never indicates that the only saved are the believers. So, 1 Timothy 4:10 is very clear, but if you don't see that it says that ALL MEN are saved, let me explain the idea using an example:

If Ricky Martin is in a concert at the Radio City Music Hall and he says that he will sing a song for EVERYBODY in the place to enjoy it and ESPECIALLY his fans, does it mean only his fans has the right to enjoy it or EVERYBODY in the place?

The Bible says: "He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world." (1Jn 2:2)

Jesus is the atoning sacrifice for the sins of ALL THE WORLD.
If hell is real, then John is a liar. As the scripture says in Titus 2:11:
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to ALL MEN.
Bringing salvation to who??? Bringing salvation to few or what it says?
Bringing salvation to !!! ALL MEN !!
